This is not a post to highlight the life and times of Steve jobs. A blogpost can’t do justice to that. This is a tribute. A post to bid adieu. To say goodbye. One last time .
No matter what anyone says, there is one indisputable fact. He was one of the greatest creative geniuses of recent times. His visions for the phones of the future, nobody else had.
When the iPhone first came out, it was an instant hit for a reason. And it was not because of the brand name of apple but because of the fact that it took phone technology and usability to a level nobody anticipated. With every new iPhone, the cellphone evolution process becomes a revolution process.
Today cloud computing has become a domestic reality through iCloud. In 1997, Steve jobs had spoken about something exactly like it. 14 years ago, a dream. Today a reality that helps millions of apple users protect their data from crashes. Dreamer? No. Visionary .
I still can’t digest the fact that he is gone. For the past week, I have been in total shock, as have been other Steve jobs admirers. 5th of October. A day when the world lost the apple of it’s eye .
Steve jobs. You will be missed. A lot of tributes from a lot of people have poured in for him . If apple called the new iPhone, 4S meaning iPhone 4 Steve, it is the best tribute of them all. No doubt. And like president Obama said “There may be no greater tribute to Steve’s success than the fact that much of the world learned of his passing on a device he invented”.
Thank you Steve, for being an inspiration, a mentor. This post is for you, wherever you are. And as a tribute, I make this post from my iPod touch. Yes I am making a blogpost from my portable music player. Need I say more?
